B Battery Box Blues

I believe the battery box on my B is original however the side is not removable. Is this possible, as everything I've seen or read says it should be. I'd like to complete an accurate restoration so this is important to me (and I'd also like to forgo the expense of a new one). Also, How thick should the wood insulators be? The top one is missing and the bottom one is just a rotten fragment.

Thanks in advance. Terry

The wooden insulators originally were a material very similar to masonite. You can make them eassily from 1/8" thick masonite from any lumberyard. If you need a new box, see Roger VanCamp in Ft. Wayne, IN 219-747-3455 Paul

Terry,

I have read that the older battery boxes did not have a removeable side. You had to unbolt the box from the torque tube and tilt the whole box to get the battery in and out.

I can't help with the wooden spacers.

Good Luck.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
